About the Artist


Dania Sierra was born in Havana Cuba and at the age of four moved to the United States. After living in the states for some time Ms. Sierra started to refine her artistic techniques with classes at Barry College, Florida Career Institute and the University of Miami, but states that she is primarily more of a self-taught artist. She has run her own professional graphic design company for over 15 years.

Ms. Sierra has been featured in several galleries and the Latin American Art Museum in Miami Florida.

Ms. Sierra was also the recipient of a Fine Arts scholarship to the University of Miami at an early age of her career; she also received a grant to study commercial art and design at The Florida Career Institute, in Miami Florida. Ms. Sierra was commissioned by Carnival Cruise Lines to create a kinetic sculpture for its Crystal Palace Hotel and Casino in Nassau Bahamas.


Through the use of rich colors and textures, Ive created my own personal vocabulary in a visual form. Expressing this through forms and entities allows me to tap into my own spiritual world and fragile emotions that travel through individuals.

My images depict a journey of unspoken words and hidden whispers of pain, hope, freedom, nurturing and immortality that exist within all of us. These feelings are resurfaced and unveiled through images of birds, amorphous figures, and abstract surroundings placing the viewer in the magical mystical world of unconscious thought.

The joy of a painter is to establish a deep sense of communication with each individual person. The emotion that a person feels upon examining a piece of art, whether its a feeling of sadness, joy, self-reflection, or serenity is the beauty of this communication. This is the transition that places the final brush stroke on the artist canvas. Therefore one canvas represents the window to millions of different emotions, that have existed and exist through all of us. Also giving the viewer a powerful tool to look within his own spiritual world for the understanding of lifes universal journey.

 Design Styles

Arts and Crafts Style
The Arts & Crafts ideal stressed simplicity, natural materials like wood and brass, and a return to individual craftsmanship. Picking up on the styles and philosophies of William Morris and Charles Renie Macintosh, the American Arts & Crafts movement offered a total way of life-grounded first and foremost in the design of the home and its furnishings.

Tuscan Style 
Tuscan style evolved through layers of history, taking cues from the earliest Etruscan metal craft and pottery, and of course, from the sumptuous world of the Italian Renaissance.
Door Styles from around the world 
Perhaps more than any other design element, a door tells the story of a structure's past and present.  Entryways can be welcoming or forbidding, rustic or formal, and frequently express essential features of the culture that has created them, the people they enclose, and even the natural environment they keep at bay.
